Will I get poor BBL scarring if I am prone to hypertrophy/keloid scaring?

Scars post BBL
You should be fine. A BBL does not require any large incision that will be prone to keloiding if you are known to have this problem. You will have small puncture like incisions the size of mosquito bites where fat is removed via lipo, and where the at the site the fat is reintroduced.
The key is to find a board certified plastic surgeon that is an expert dealing with patients prone to keloid or hypertrophic scars.

Thank you for your question. It is uncommon, but hypertrophic scars can come from small liposuction incisions. Scars will remodel for up to two years. See your surgeon when you first notice the scar thickening. Steroid injections can be used to treat scars that are starting to form keloids. Silicone creams and tape can help prevent and minimize scaring.

#keloids, #BBL. no body. Can tell you for sure
An ABPS certified surgeon should be able to provide the best possible care for your wounds, however no body can tell you for sure that you will no get keloids, if somebody tells you categorically for you not to worry, my advise is for you to see a different surgeon.
the bigger the wound,and the most tension the wound, as well as a history of keloids, the more chances you can have another keloid.
Remember, the most important factor in obtaining a good result from your cosmetic surgery is the surgeon you elect to perform it.
